#KnowYourNumbers by checking your blood pressure regularly
When did you last check your blood pressure?
Know Your Number is a national campaign to raise awareness about the importance of checking your blood pressure, especially for those who are over the age of 40. Around one third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure which rarely has noticeable symptoms but if untreated, it increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.
You can get your blood pressure checked at an NHS pharmacy, an NHS Health Check appointment offered to adults in England aged 40-74, at home or at your local GP surgery. Find resources and more information at: NHS UK and British Heart Foundation.
The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure tested.
